Engineering and manufacturing company Stephenson Gobin Ltd. has recently completed its relocation from High Etherley to a bigger refurbished facility in South Church Enterprise Park.
South Church Enterprise Park is an established industrial estate, already hosting a number of large manufacturing businesses and plays an important role in the local economy. It is a location where expansion of existing businesses and development of new business is expected to meet the economic growth objectives of County Durham.
This unit had been vacant for around two years and therefore the redevelopment was welcomed by Durham County Council.
Stephenson Gobin Ltd.’s development of the site comprised the refurbishment of an already existing factory building, previously operated by a company manufacturing coat hangers, and also the construction of a new office block.
It is hoped by the County Council that the new industrial facility could create a significant number of jobs in the local area.
The Department for Transport (DfT) has signed the deal with Hitachi Rail Europe which will bring a high tech rail assembly plant to Newton Aycliffe, County Durham.
